Waikato Family Needs Au Pair!

Payment: Accommodation & Paid ($195-$245 p/w plus completion bonus)
Location: Waikato

This busy farming family are looking for their new au pair to join them and help with their outgoing and energetic children during the busy season.

Their four lovely children aged 7, 5, 4 and 2 are clever, energetic, unique and fun-filled individuals - there is never a moment of dullness in this household! Their oldest daughter attends the local primary school with her sibling, and loves netball, going to Brownies and wants to get into Gymnastics. Their second child has just started school and is loving it! He is cheeky, fun and energetic who loves running around outside. Their third child attends the local kindergarten 4 days a week, he is a sensitive soul who will be up for a cuddle anytime. And finally, their youngest is starting at the same local Kindy twice a week. He loves being outside, reading and chasing the cat (who is not as excited by this as he is)

Your typical duties will be child-related chores, getting the kids ready for school/Kindy, initiating fun activities for the youngest and preparing meals for them. As you will be living on a Dairy Farm, mum and dad are often up and out the door very early – so you won’t mind early mornings with the children.

Ideally, you’ll have nanny, babysitting, teaching or coaching experiences or similar to join this family.

If you are an energetic, responsible, mature individual with a good sense of humour and would love to keep up with these four bundles of energy then get in touch now!
